, at all, we understand that general allen is in washington, ahead of what was going to be a confirmation hearing, where does this stand right now. >> that confirmation process has been put on hold for general john allen. they're speeding up the confirmation process for his replacement in afghanistan. we're awaiting of course for the white house to respond on camera. i can tell you that the briefing will likely focus on exclusively on this issue the fallout from general petraeus and now general john allen. white house released this statement in the early hours of this morning, we havegraphic of it. it says, quote at the question of the secretary of defense, the president has put on hold his nomination of general allen as saceur pending the investigation of john allen. that's coming from tommy vietor. this is coming the days after president obama won re-election. certainly not how the administration envisioned the first few days of the new term. they are certainly stunned by some of these developments and trying to stay focused on the fiscal cliff, that's something that's pending and poten
in washington. the president's fiscal cliff campaign. live pictures of the white house are president obama will meet today with 15 small business owners. the first of a series of meetings this week as the administration puts the pressure on congress to make a deal. the "washington post" reporting the talks are accelerating between president obama and top congressional leaders, including john boehner who was on the phone with the president over the weekend. the white house's pr campaign is being buoyed along by warren buffett who is voicing support for tax hikes for americans just like him. >> i think it would have a great effect in terms of the morale of the middle class who have seen themselves paying high payroll taxes, income taxes and then watched guys like me end up paying a rate that's below that, you know, paid by the people in my office. >> joining me now is wisconsin's republican senator ron johnson. senator, it's great to have you with us this morning. and as we talk about what's taking place in washington, d.c. right now, the million dollar question is all concerns around senato
>>> newly elected president obama is back in washington, automatic spending cuts and tax increases set to go into effect at the beginning of the year, known together as the fiscal cliff. members of one of the most deeply divided congresses in history are sending smoke signals up capitol hill to note they are ready to get back to the bargaining table. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. >> i want to work together, but i want everyone to also understand, you can't push us around. we want to work together. >> as washington digs back in, politicians and pundits alike are still post-gaming obama's election night victory. >> as soon as the votes started coming in and we matched them up against the model, we were well convinced that the thing was going to go according to plan. >> republicans in a crisis of their own after mitt romney's disastrous defeat. does the governor's loss and demise signal a greater crossroads for the grand 'ole party? >> i think it's more of a branding problem because the branding proble
with arming hamas and its own stand offwith israel. joining me is dennis ross of the washington institute for institutional policy. dennis, welcome. let's talk about the role that iran played in this conflict over the last eight, nine days. iron that out for me. >> i think we have to put it into larger perspective. i don't think they've played a role over the last few days. all the arms that, in fact, islamist jihad and others why gaza were using, almost all of them were coming from the iranians. they have built up a long range rocket capacity. that's what the israelis went after. they have done everything they could to make gaza an armed island that can be a platform for an attack against israel. they have constantly encouraged attacks against israel. iran has played a major role in terms of being the provider of the arsenal that existed there. my guess is they will now try to replenish it because the israelis have stepped back that arsenal in a fairly significant way. >> what about the suggestion that israel was doing all of this and while doing this over the last eight, nine days they
. let's go now to msnbc's craig melvin in washington. >> thank you so much. had some technical problems but we're back online here in our nation's capital. we turn back to politics. our political headlines, frenetic, frenzy final weekend with all the candidates and their surrogates out in full force right now. mitt romney just wrapped up an event end dubuque, iowa a state where most polls gives the president a narrow lead. paul ryan wind ul up a rally in pennsylvania where the romney campaign is trying to make a late pushed. the combined events of mitt romney and paul ryan will give the campaign in seven different states today. the president also had a whirlwind schedule today going to iowa, ohio, virginia, going to wisconsin as well today. vice president joe biden has two events in colorado, one outside denver, the other in pueblo. the candidates are also taking the fight to the printed page today with duelling op-eds in the "wall street journal." meanwhile back in d.c. this morning president obama at fema headquarters where he met with officials and talked about disaster relief in the
in washington that his response now is significant in satisfying people who would like for him to express stronger support for israel? >> you know, there has been some controversy, some tension, frankly, between prime minister netanyahu and the president. that's no secret. there was the recent episode where the prime minister went before the united nations andrew that red line, you remember, across that little cartoon bomb. some disagreement about when and where that red line should be drawn with respect to iran's nuclear program. but look, there is no question that any american president, any american government is going to back up israel if it comes to any kind of military conflict with some of its neighbors that wish for its destruction, frankly. and in fact, the senior official on the airplane today said the following about a possible israeli ground invasion of the gaza strip, something that nobody wants to see, but it's a very real possibility as israel quiets ready and prepares for that possibility. the white house official says israel can, quote, make their own decisions about tact

this, the austerity crisis, better known as the fiscal cliff facing washington and the country. this hour president obama will speak live at the white house flanked by middle-class families whose household budgets depend on congress reaching a deal by january 1st. his latest effort to use his bully pulpit. nearby on capitol hill, both parties are meeting behind closed doors at this very minute. each side hashing out where they are willing to compromise and where they are drawing the line in the sand. >>> the other big story we're watching for you, a second round of sitdowns for united nations ambassador susan rice, who's in an all-out campaign of her own to face her critics. after three republicans issued blistering comments yesterday, this morning rice is meeting with republican senator susan collins of maine and in an hour is expected to meet with senator bob corker of tennessee. rice's harshest krit eks are still vowing to block her potential nomination as next secretary of state. >> i think everybody gets to, one, be nominated, and, two, go through the hearings and the deba
in washington. the president know this is. he knows that he and i can work together. the election is over. now it's time to get to work. >> speaker boehner said that with a straight face. didn't bat an eyelash. can we take it at face value? >> he's reasonable and responsible. who hasn't been is the tea party caucus. the big problem that speaker boehner had during the debt ceiling crisis is he was part of the grand bargain with the president but when he said no. but after the election, speaker boehner and now that the american people have spoken, speaker boehner has more weight behind him to say to his caucus, folks, get in line. >> in last night's interview the speaker talked about obama care. i want to remind everybody what he had to say about that. >> the alexeis that. the the president is reelected. obama care is the law of the land. >> but you won't be spending the time next year trying to repeal obama care? >> there may be parts of it that we believe need e to be changed. we may do that. no decisions at this point. >> okay. obama care is the law of the land. maybe parts of it could be cha
critical of president obama in his first term. you told the washington examiner that he didn't focus enough on jobs, that he didn't focus enough on economic recovery. do you think that the president is going to spend more time on that in his second term? >> i don't have any doubt that he will. it's a matter now of -- and this is one of the reasons that i said i want to vote for the president because i want to see him fulfill his dream. i want to see him go forward with what he has promised. one of the best speeches he ever made was to the u.s. conference of mayors in 2008 and which he spoke of infrastructure improvement. look at the storm that hit the northeast. look how we could put those grid lines under ground. look at the jobs it would create. but look how it would really be improving our infrastructure in our decaying cities and some of the newer cities as well. i think the president is going to do that. i think more importantly, when you speak about this voting rights act, the president has a responsibility to, and i'm certain he will be certain to move on with the appointment and the
a lightning bolt. the way i found out, i came back to washington thursday night. friday morning, the staff director told me there were a number of calls from press about this. i called david petraeus. >> and questions remain about why the president and white house were not notified until late last week, months after this all began and days after petraeus and broadwell were questioned in the case. >> once the fbi realized it was investigating the director of the cia or the cia director had come within its focus or its scope, i believe at that time they had an absolute obligation to tell the president. not to protect david petraeus but to protect the president. >> for the latest on the fallout, let's check in with pete williams. he's been following this for us. pete, let's talk about the time line here. this happened right before the benghazi hearings. petraeus is supposed to have testified at those hearings on thursday. critics are questioning, why are we hearing about all of this later rather than sooner? >> what the fbi and the justice department say is that in the middle of this investig
center in washington. welcome, stewart, thank you for being here on thanksgiving. >> good morning. >> you were also partly raised in the middle east. your father served in the foreign service. you've seen firsthand from a young age that cease-fires have a history of collapsing. do you feel this one is different? >> well, no, actually, they're very fragile in the middle east. these cycles can break down at any moment. but in this case, what you have is the emergence of a consensus that, you know, on the israeli side, the cost of a ground invasion was not something that they sought. and also, on the palestinian side, that, you know, israel has such a strong military superiority, that looking at a way to kind of get the talks restarted is really the outcome that people look for here. but in the middle east, the memories are long. of course, this is a cycle that's been going on for half a century. so i think they look at it with skepticism. but the only thing we can do really is to work on getting a process started again. >> yeah. well, you take it step by step. and in just a few hours, we're
place. >> really quickly, if every lawmaker in washington, d.c., was cheated on his wife and stepped aside, there would be far fewer politicians in the nation's capital. how real is the chance that the director stepped aside because of exposure? no, again, is raises the question suddenly within two days or three days and also, for what it's worth, i think we're getting too sanctimonious on this issue. so to me, if a person is doing a job and does not involve national security and doesn't involve a crime, i think we have to -- going back to the days of king david. no one is perfect. and i think we're pushing too many good men and women out of government. >> congressman peter king, chairman of the house homeland committee, thank you for your time. >> thank you. >>> coming up on msnbc on this saturday afternoon, what winning want. it's not that kind of show. what women voters want. we'll talk about that. plus, from shakeups to showdowns, president and congress have a huge task on their hand in case you hadn't heard. before we all find ourselves in another major recession, we're going to
thing and i hope he does it because i think it is important people you said outside of washington know the kinds of gains going on on capitol hill and the things this people voted for not being acted upon by republicans. >> as i was talking with congressman van holen, again, there is a growing number of gop folk that is seem to be backing away from grover norquist's tax pledge. given that the very idea of raising taxes could be damaging to any republican who might be facing a primary in the next year, is there really enough support for shunning norquist at this point? >> you remember, even when george bush was president, democrats said they wouldn't cut taxes at all. bush ended up winning that pr battle and the conversation wasn't about whether they would cut taxes and how much they would cut taxes and conversely here what we have is the president moving forward with his agenda which was to raise taxes and now a republicans who had their heels firmly dug in are now saying instead of not raising taxes let's just talk about how much we're going to raise taxes, so it appears for the most
on the budget? live from the russell rotunda in washington, d.c., the independent bernie sanders of vermont. is this newly reelected president the same commander in chief that you saw in the past four years? we're hearing people like that comment. more testosterone. >> thomas, time will tell. but it is clear to me that the president must keep the promise that he made too to the american people. and that is not to do deficit deductions on the backs of the elderly and disabled veterans programs, and we are going to ask the wealthiest people in the country to start paying their fair share of taxes. that's what he told the american people. he won on that. many of us said the same thing. democrats won 25 out of 3 # senate races, and he has got to stick to that position. we will be right behind him on that. >> sir, you've been vocal and an advocate for the progressive agenda. what do you think the president can get done as a liberal? we talked about reducing the deficit, avoiding the fiscal cliff. where will the middle be met? >> on this issue, i think the american people spoke during the electio
,000. kristen welker is joining me from washington. hello to you, once again. >> reporter: hello. >> let's talk about negotiations and where all this stands. what's the status of things? >> we expect president obama to invite congressional leaders back to the white house in the coming days. you remember he had them here last week. they came out and struck this rare tone of bipartisanship. a lot of peel thought it was a sign of things moving in the right direction, that they could get a deal struck in a timely fashion. since then congressional aides have been trying to put meat on the bones of the deal and we are told republicans' starting offer really is not that different from where they were before the election. they are still basically saying that they want to keep the bush-era tax cuts where they are, which is completely the opposite of democrats want, which is to let the bush-era tax cuts expire for the wealthiest americans. republicans talking about reforming entitlements. you have harry reid saying he is not open to reforming specifically social security. there may be some wiggle room on
determination and cautious optimism yesterday. >> it's too important for washington to screw this up. now is the time for us to work on what we all agreed to, which is let's keep middle class taxes lower. >> time for the president and democrats to get serious about the spending problem that our country has. but i'm optimistic that we can continue to work together to overt this crisis. >> politico also reporting that the two men had a phone call yesterday that was, quote, curt. can these two men with a history of butting heads meet in the middle before america goes over the edge? >> we have a very, very reasonable chance of going over this cliff. every hour is ticking by, every day is ticking by. >> i think when this gets played out at the end, they'll get right up to cliff on new year's eve, we'll all be hugging cliff and giving cliff a kiss on the cheek. >> from the capitol to the white house, get who is coming to lunch. mr. romney goes to washington. he'll dine today at 1600 pennsylvania avenue at the invitation of the president himself. the question, is there a grander purpose behind t
washington continue as status quo? >> what does this president do following lessons of the past to make sure that his second term is more effective than his first? >> the only thing worse than losing a re-election is winning it. >> now is not the time for just celebration or gloating. i think it's the time to really go where he went in the speech. take the high road. bring the country together. make some hard decisions. >> all right. so let's dig right in and bring in our election post game political panel. we have assembled quite the team. assisting managing editor of time, executive editor of msnbc.com, professor at university of virginia center for politics, and columnist for the san francisco chronicle, and republican strategist. it's great to have you all here. i know it's been a long night for so many of us. we still have so much to talk about. ron, i want to start with you. the fact the president won this and did so with the decisive and clean victory. that can't be questioned. the battleground states coming through really especially in ohio. when we break down the numbers and show la
washington bureau chief and columnist, lynn sweet. both big fans of "price is right," i understand. the president wants to keep the taxes and exit poll says 47% ironic number there, 47% says that there should be a tax hike for those earning over $250,000 a year but republicans don't want any tax hike. is this going to be the sticking point in negotiations? >> well, this is the first round. think of it this way. obama is now saying that the republicans are the ones that want a tax hike, right, the party that you might associate with being anti-tax. because if you do nothing, if you do nothing, we all, that's to congress, we all will pay more tacks next year. if you do what people will seem reasonable, if you give 98% of us -- because that's how many of us don't earn -- joint earners don't earn 250,000, why don't you let most of us keep the tax break that we get now. now, an ideal way of crafting a deficit reduction package, you do all the parts together. if you listen carefully to oh what obama said yesterday, it seems it's trying to, to a degree at least, to lock in the tax cuts to
washington, as we all edge closer to the so-called fiscal cliff, we'll ask two political insiders how we can break the pennsylvania avenue stalemate. and then later on on this veterans day, how dot men and women who served and sacrificed feel about how their issues played out on the campaign trail. first topping the political headlines on this sunday, lawmakers weighing in today on whether they can strike a deal to avoid sending the country over the looming fiscal cliff. democratic chuck schumer saying on nbc's "meet the press," it's time for republicans to agree to raise taxes on the wealthy. >> the president campaigned on letting the bush tax cuts expire on people above $250,000 income. the exit poll showed that 60% of the people agreed with it. >> but republican senator tom coburn also on "meet the press" indicating while the gop is on board with closing some tax loopholes, it is not sold on letting the bush tax cuts expire. >> we've had votes in the senate where we've actually gotten rid of tax credits. i think that's a given. and i think the vast majority of americans agree with that. t
as they did in 2008. >> ayman, thanks so much. >>> we take you to washington where high stakes meetings are under way at the white house this hour. and also on the hill. first though to the white house where the president convened a pow-wow minutes ago with congressional leaders there to talk about the tsunami of tax hikes and spending cuts set to go into effect at the end of the year known as the fiscal cliff. the president offering these remarks just a short time ago. take a listen. >> i think we're all aware that we have some urgent business to do. we've got to make sure that taxes don't go up on middle class families, that our economy remains strong, that we're creating jobs, and that is an agenda democrats and republicans and independents, people all across the country share. >>> getting the lion's share of attention today in washington is general petraeus. his testimony before two closed hearings. the first with the house intelligence committee at 7:30 a.m. this morning. his second started about two hours ago with the senate intel committee. new york congressman peter king reveali
ago, nobody foresaw. >> meanwhile back home in washington, congress is off for a week for the thanksgiving holiday, lawmakers are vowing to get to the bottom of intelligence questions in the immediate wake of the deadly attack of a u.s. consulate in libya, including whether ambassador susan rice's so-called talking points were altared the weekend after she gave that announcem of the attack. >> she didn't know anything about the attack in benghazi and the most politically compliant person. i don't know what she knew, but i know that the story she told was misleading. >> the debate on the hill intensified by general david petraeus' testimony friday that they suspected terrorism from the very beginning. >> why do you tell the american public something that is different in meaning? it should be perhaps leave out the details or the sources and then -- >> well, again, though, the details here were al qaeda. >> before you get to the question of what susan rice should or shouldn't have said, i think that we need to know the answer of who changed the talking points and why. >>

was the middle east envoy for president clinton and george h.w. bush. he's now with the washington institute for near east politics and an msnbc contributor. thank you for being with us, ambassador. i want to go straight to a piece you wrote for "the new york daily news." it's called "the fuel for the flames." you write the link between hamas and the muslim brotherhood is a concern. how vital is egypt's role given that in the gaza conflict right now? we know they're meeting right now. >> i think egypt is the key. they're the pivot here. what we're seeing is a situation where egypt really does not want to be put in a position where israel goes in to gaza. if that's the case, then the pressure is from within egypt from the muslim brotherhood, from the population, are going to be very intense. the last thing egypt wanted to do as a time when it needs to correct and deal with tremendous economic challenges is to be in a situation where if it threatens the peace treaty with israel, it guarantees it loses all the assistance from the outside. so they have a relationship with hamas because the musli
roberts and a jam-packed agenda with nonstop new developments coming out of washington this morning. we begin with break news, nbc news learned that general david petraeus has volunteered to appear before the senate intelligence committee on capitol hill tomorrow for a closed hearing. these new developments coming just two hours away from president obama's first news conference since his re-election victory. a moment when an incumbent about to be sworn in for a second term would be expected to outline his goals and agenda but it's likely to be dominated by headlines surrounding two of the nation's highest ranking military general, petraeus and general john allen. let's refresh the details. general john allen is denying any and all allegations of an extramarital affair and any other wrongdoing. his nomination as commander of nato remains on hold but continues to lead in afghanistan. the white house expressing confidence in his ability to do so yesterday echoed by two members of the president's cabinet today. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusi
for "the washington post," keith boykin, cnbc contributor and hogan bidly who served as communications director for rick santorum's presidential campaign. great to have you here and ruth, petraeus now testifying or will be testifying on capitol hill. does this bring it all back to the original story and the attention and focus where it needs to be about what happened in benghazi, the loss of four american diplomats and away from this salacious sexual scandal. >> i think you answered your own question. i say this with a bit of regret and also a bit of humor, as between dealing with serious substantive questions whether it's benghazi or the fiscal cliff and salacious sexual scandal, i know which we think is going to get the attention and especially this story which is developing into some combination of real housewives of centcom meets "homeland," it's just too sordidly delicious not to have us spending, us in the immediate yashgs spending some time figuring out what in the heck was going on here. i do have to say i really think there are a lot of important questions to be dealt with at
keeping contact with president morsi, what are republicans in washington looking for as our two governments are trying to resolve this together? >> well, we're looking for balance, of course, and looking for our government for secretary clinton to represent our best interests in these negotiations. obviously, everybody wants to see peace in the middle east. and now we have the challenge of dealing with fairly awe and untested -- not regimes but new administrations. and so there's a lot of uncertainty in that part of the world, a lot of urn certainty with regards to whether or not there will be peace. we, of course, our prayers are with the families that lost loved ones in these terrorist attacks, and we're praying for peace in that part of the world. but clearly we want the u.s. to stand strong and want secretary clinton to be successful in negotiations. >> we did play that sound earlier from secretary clinton condemning the hamas attacks, the rocket fire on israel, as terrorist attacks from within ga gaza. there have been questions certainly about the president's relationship w
be quiet in washington but the clock is ticking. lawmakers have just five weeks to get a deal to stop us from going over the fiscal cliff. i want to bring in msnbc contributor robert traynham and a democratic strategist. hi, guys. good to see you. happy day after. david, there is a lot of lobbying. the unions are running ads, don't cut medicare and medicaid. at the same time the defense industry, manufacturers, they're lobbying against cuts. afraid jobs will be lost for the people who make the weapons. the list goes on and on. so how does this shape a potential deal? >> well, there's pressure from both sides. negotiators in congress right now from both parties are trying to find a way to avoid the cliff. that could be a temporary way to do that and come back over tax reform next year. i think what the signs are that the president wants to raise tax rates on the wealthiest 2% of earners, a balanced approach, but the republican party is saying, hey, wait a minute. let's close tax loopholes, close deductions. that's a better way. so i think they are looking for are a path down the middle. >
people have voted in 34 states and washington, d.c. we're right here on democracy plaza and the location home for nbc and msnbc here at our world headquarters at 30 rock here in new york city. it's a fantastic spot and we have a mega power panel. joy ann reed and bob shrum, larry sabato, karen finney and republican strategist, john bray. gang, it is great to have you assembled. avengers unite. we're seeing the judge extendingextending early voting. >> the strategy of the republican state legislature in florida was to not allow 2008 to happen again. so they cut early voting from 14 days county to including cutting away the whole sunday. so, what democrats did and what churches did is they rally ied people to really take advantage of early voting, which is producing these incredibly long lines. i've heard up to six and eight-hour eight times and a lot of them are in predominantly african-american communities. what that's meant is there there is overcapacity. that literally, these polling places are being overrun with people and they can't handle it. democrats went to federal court and ask
